Winter Love Island is gone for good as All-Stars takes its place

Winter Love Island has been officially axed as ITV are now set to replace the series with a new format instead.

A new dating show called All Stars is set to begin airing at the beginning of next year in place of the show we know and love.

The first Love Island winter series was originally cancelled in 2020 but was brought back for 2023 after new presenter Maya Jama took over from Laura Whitmore.

Hoping the series would increase ratings for the series in general, it did not go as well as producers had hoped.

According to the MailOnline, All Stars will still have the same vibe as Love Island but a slightly different format as we see former contestants of the show return to our screens for a second chance at love.

A source told the publication that “in terms of iconic Love Island stars who are now happily married including the likes of Olivia Attwood, producers are looking into cameo appearances so that they still involve fan favourites from the years gone by.”

The series is set to be filmed in South Africa, which is where the winter season is filmed, and producers are believed to be already contacting former contestants in hopes of getting them on board.

It was previously reported by The Sun that a Love Island All-Stars would be hitting our screens in autumn, with the spin-off seeing islanders from the US, UK, Australia and other international versions all taking part.

Set to be called Love Island Games, the show would see the singletons couple up and compete in different games and challenges as one will be crowned the winner.

Produced by ITV Entertainment and airing on Peacock this autumn, The Sun has revealed that filming is set to begin in October in Fiji.

A source told the publication: “Filming kicks off in Fiji in October – that’s where they film the US version of the show.

“Bosses are in talks with over 100 contestants from the US, UK and Australian versions of the show including a controversial UK winner and one of the most memorable girls from a legendary season.”
